Inside the wide-track Pontiac, which is 6.66 feet wide, chrome-plated instruments abound, all canted toward the driver. The interior is covered in a combination of Province cloth and Morrokide vinyl.

Even with a 124-inch wheelbase, the overhang behind the rear axle is 5 feet, 2 inches long. When new, these cars often had damaged exhaust systems where they had bottomed out on a steep driveway.

The previous owner addressed the problem by rerouting the two exhaust pipes through the rear bumper using holes formerly occupied by the backup lights.

With all the Pontiac’s systems functioning properly from the stacked headlights to the wraparound taillights, Mr. Herman is prepared to take it anywhere. The odometer only now is approaching 115,000 miles.
